Are you interested in the really cool parts of computing?
We're talking about robots, artificially intelligent simulations, virtual reality, 3D-printing or just the art of programming itself - if the idea of learning about and working with these areas of computing gets you stirring then we'd love to welcome you to the Keele BCS Student Chapter, KBSC.
This year we're already planning some exciting projects for our members to get involved with, including:
Robot construction events & workshops for members any experience level
Crash courses on both 3D-modelling and 3D-printing so you can finally make that lifesize R2D2 that you've always wanted
Crash courses on coding projects such as video games, simulations & robotics
And we'll be running all of the above whilst supporting local organisations and charities - what's not to love?
No prior experience needed
You don't even need to be a computer science student! At KBSC we're here to guide anyone through as many of the most fascinating parts of computing as we can possibly fit into the year, whether you're a seasoned pro whose Java is better than their English or someone who has yet to take the dive into the world of 1s and 0s themselves.
We're also lining up some beginner classes on coding as well – these will be taught by members of the society with industry level experience and will include a range of programming principles & languages, including some languages not taught on the computer science course.
What is BCS?
BCS, or the British Computer Society, is a charity and chartered institute for IT with two simple goals:
2. To advance educational knowledge in ICT for both professionals and the general public
Essentially they're all about the knowledge behind computing - and that's exactly what we're about as well!
